History of the New York Fire Department, Ch 37, Part II; http://www.usgennet.org/usa/ny/state/fire/31-40/ch37pt2.html:

Middle Name Research: The name of Gustavus does not appear prior to this Andrew or afterward. However a Gustavus Norwood lived in York, Maine - b. 6 Dec 1748, son of Gustavus Norwood. I have to believe, but have thus far been unable to prove that there was some interaction between the two families. I believe Gustavus Norwood descends from the Francis Norwood line.
